Ultimate Guide to Sentinel for Dogs

Meet the Powerful Parasite Preventer: Sentinel for Dogs!

Sentinel for Dogs is the veterinarian-approved dog medication that protects your dogs from various dangerous tiny parasites, internal and external. Sentinel is a monthly, chewable oral tablet that also prevents vicious heartworm disease that is transmitted from mosquito bites. Sentinel ensures that your pup is in their healthiest condition.

How does Sentinel for Dogs work?

Sentinel for Dogs is a medication with two active ingredients (Lufenuron and Milbemycin Oxime).

Lufenuron is an insecticide that distributes into the dog's body fat which the adult flea will eat and pass on to its eggs. As a pesticide and insect growth regulator (IGR), it inhibits the development of chitin which builds a larval flea's exoskeleton. When they hatch, the flea larva dies when its inner organs are exposed to air.

The second active ingredient, milbemycin oxime, is a powerful parasiticide and an anthelmintic, or dewormer. It is 100% effective heartworm disease preventative. It also controls three dangerous intestinal worms (i.e., adult roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms).

Because Sentinel for Dogs is a heartworm disease preventative, make sure every dog is tested by your veterinarian before prevention therapy or using Sentinel.

How is Sentinel for Dogs administered?

Sentinel for Dogs is administered orally once a month and protects your dog for the next 30 days. These beef-flavored chewable tablets can be used as dog treats or, most effectively, eaten with the dog's food. Sentinel is used year-round for maximum prevention effectiveness.

Test for heartworm disease before deworming therapy or before using Sentinel. Sentinel's most common unfriendly reactions reported are vomiting, diarrhea, itching, decreased appetite, hives, and seizures. Contact your veterinarian if any effects occur.
